Damage Waiver included

The price includes a non-returnable Damage Waiver, which removes your liability for damage and third-party claims (other than wilful damage).

Discounts

You may claim ONE only of the following discounts. This must be claimed at the time of booking.

Loyalty discount
As a welcome to our many returning customers:

Previous Holidays Reward %
1 previous holiday 4%
2 previous holidays 6%
3 previous holidays 8%
4 previous holidays 10%

Applies only to bookings made direct with us and when booked in the same lead name.

Flotilla discount
if you book two or more boats in the same lead name for the same period, take 5% off the boat price of the cheaper boat(s).

All discounts are based on the boat price and do not apply to damage waiver or extras. Additional discounts are not available with outside offers.

Optional extras

Extra adults or children
Many boats are shown with a variable berth number, e.g. Dorset 4+2 – meaning that there are 4 fixed berths, plus 2 convertible berths. The prices shown on page 16 are for the base number of berths – in this case, 4. The price you pay depends partly on how many people you bring – extra adults are charged £25 per week or part week; extra children are free.
When you do an online availability search (or ring us) you will be able to choose between e.g. Dorset 4 and Dorset 6 – these are the same boat priced for different numbers of adults.
Pick the version that fits the total number of your crew. If your ‘+2’ are under 18, tell us when you book and we will reduce the price before issuing the Booking Confirmation.

Extra pets
The first pet is free. Any extras (subject to our agreement) are charged at £25 per week.

Towels
One bath and one hand towel per person – £5 per set per head. Towels must be ordered in advance, either at the time of booking or on your bedding Yellow Form. Towels are provided free to those who book from overseas.

Maps and guides
For planning your journey - see our guides shop.

Booking deposit

20% of the total cost to the nearest £, minimum £125.
The balance is due six weeks before your holiday.

Holiday and cancellation insurance

We insure the boat, including cover for your potential liability to third parties. Your damage waiver removes your liability for the excess on this policy and for non-claimable damage.

If you cancel for any reason, you may be required to pay all or part of your balance, or you may receive a partial or complete refund. This depends on how much notice you give, and whether we are able to re-let the boat. Please see Condition 5.

Our insurance does not cover you for:

● Personal accident
● Personal possessions
● Cancellation not refundable as above

We strongly recommend that you take out holiday insurance to protect against these and other risks.

If you do not already have suitable insurance, you can readily obtain it on the internet.
